seat foam expanding?

Is there a way to re expand the foam used in car seats. I just got a bench seat from a Dodge minivan. The head rests have indents in them from resting against something that was in the back of the van at the wreckers. Is there a way to get them back to the original shape? Or should I try and get new head rests?

Those headrests have to be the easiest thing in the world to find, with as many as were made. The only thing I know of that would help bring back the shape is a steamer like this Jiffy Steamer. Find a good full service dry cleaner or an upholstery shop, and they should have one if you can't find one. Take the covers off the headrests first. Good Luck.
